I have a problem with my nvidia graphics card. In device manager it is listed
as installed in PCI bus 1 though it is an agp-card. It also shares IRQ with
ethernet card, audio driver and USB. I can't assign IRQ manually. How can I
fix this?

Try setting BIOS to agp,instead of pci mode it might be in now.

If your video monitor is connected to the video card you mentioned, there's
nothing to fix. Its normal for XP to show irq shares of primary devices
using the same irq. If its working correctly, ignore it. XP may not be
reflecting the hardware irq designation of the onboard bios if XP is using
high order irqs like 22 for instance.

It may be possible to force the LAN card to use an alternative irq to reduce
sharing by eliminating/disabling COM2 in the bios. Similar with the audio
card considering other unused hardware on the PC. If this is a
notebook/laptop, I would leave it alone irregardless. If this is a PC that
uses a restoration XP CD, I wouldn't touch the bios settings regarding
device disabling.
